Deputies attempted to conduct a traffic stop; however, the driver failed to yield and a vehicle pursuit was initiated. The vehicle pursuit ended when the stolen vehicle became disabled on several rocks and debris at the dead end of Rome Hill Road in Lakeland Village. The suspect attempted to flee on foot and was immediately apprehended by deputies.
The suspect was identified as Abel Hall, a 21- year-old resident of Lake Elsinore, who is currently on probation for possession of a stolen vehicle. Hall was booked at the Cois Byrd Detention Center for Evading, Vehicle Theft, Possession of a Stolen Vehicle, and a Probation Violation.
